    I bought a new "old stock" Tokina 17mm F3.5 prime. I don't go that wide, often, but I love having it in the bag when I do. Wide open, it's soft in the corners. F5.6 it's fine. F8, it's super sharp.

    A couple of quick shots with the 18-35 1:3.5-4.5G for anyone interested. I haven't had a chance to really test it out, running the same shot through different apertures, etc.

    Initially, to my novice eye: pretty sharp lens, very acceptable. I need to learn to focus it. Seems like pretty significant CA which removed easily in post. Seems like a keeper, at least for a while. The dark corners lower left and upper right I believe are the lens hood. May not have been fully rotated into place.

    all SOOC (D800)
